The Race Face Ambush shorts are tough and have big, functional pockets, while the jersey is cut well and has a very useful built-in feature.
The Race Face Nano Pullover is a lightweight, packable shell with a biking-specific fit. If the weather changes quickly where you ride, it’s great to have in your pack.
The Race Face Team Chute jacket will keep you dry on wet, muddy rides, it’s more durable than your average rain jacket, and it won’t cost you a fortune.

Redesigned for 2013, the Specialized Tactic helmet does everything well, and at a good price.
